A Material World: Parents Get Their Hands On Montessori Math

MBTS buzzed with energy and excitement as over sixty members of the parent community attended a recent parent education evening focusing on the exceptional strengths of the Montessori approach to teaching Mathematics.

“The Mystery of Montessori Math, Unravelled” took place in the Upper Elementary building on the seaside on November 15th, and teachers from Casa, Lower Elementary and Upper Elementary expertly shared their knowledge of Montessori Math materials.

After a brief overview highlighting the unique characteristics of the Montessori Math curriculum at each level, parents spent the majority of the time exploring various Montessori materials, which were set up at various stations. The Casa, Lower Elementary and Upper Elementary teachers were on hand to demonstrate and explain the materials, as well as answer questions. It was wonderful to watch parents eagerly get their hands on the mind-boggling range of Montessori materials, and participate in impromptu lessons.

MBTS would like to thank all of the parents who took time out of their evening to enthusiastically learn more about their child’s Montessori education, and to experience the brilliance of the Montessori Math materials first-hand.

“He does it with his hands, by experience, first in play and then through work. The hands are the instruments of man’s intelligence.” (Dr. Maria Montessori, The Absorbent Mind)
